was a big part of it. at the same time the u.n. security council passed the first resolution in 1962, so it was a long walk to sanctions, not just a long walk to freedom. what is your take on why it took so long, given the overt racism in south africa to get to that point? >> well, as i just mentioned, why did it take us so long to get a voting bill passed under linden johnson? how could we a country of 200 or 300 years allowed slavery, jim crowe slavery to have persisted for so long? i think that's just another example of it that over time finally the morality and the ill morality of racism was able to be overcome. but it is not easy and i think many feelings are still there. you can see there is still a divide in our country. we still divide up red state, blue state. we have those fighting the civil war in many ways in their own minds, whether it's northern aggression or the interruption of a way of life in the south, et cetera. so i think it's a part of the human drama that we have to fight this evil of discrimination based on either race, ethnicity, religion, preference, any of the s
